Default 1999 Honda Civic EX Coupe Radio trouble

Hello, can anyone help me diagnose my radio problems? I have a 1999
Honda Civic EX Coupe and the AM radio isn't working. The FM stations
work and the CD Player works but the AM radio does not work. Also, I
noticed if I have the volume all the way up, the speakers click
whenever I turn the turn signals on. I'm not sure if that happened
before.
Can anyone help me? Thank you.

-Carl

There may be a problem with the antenna. FM stations will work even
without an antenna at a reduced quality and prone to interference like
from your blinkers. AM stations on the other hand will barely work, if
at all.

I believe your Civic's generation has the antenna integrated into the
rear windshield. If that's the case, make sure it's not disconnected,
and that the traces are still continuous. If they're scratched, that
would cause the antenna to malfunction. There are paints that will allow
you to fix the scratches, but I don't remember their name.

If you're hearing the signals through your speakers you may also have some
crossed wires in the console area. Have the dealer take a peek (or you can
do it if you know how) to see if something has disconnected from the rear of
the stereo.... perhaps the AM connector has fallen off and is sitting on the
power lines for the signals.

Thanks I'll check it out. My Civic has an Antenna Mast. I guess I'll
figure out how to take things apart and see if there's any loose
connections. If not, I'll try replacing the antenna. I have to do
all my own work because there are some really bad mechanics out there
(even at the dealerships).
